You are able to remove using ADB without root. This has been since pre-beta and I don't think it'll change.

I am not going to take the chance of rooting the device also it may also affect Knox which will completely void any warranty, but Facebook should not be preloaded on a unlocked phone

Using ADB is not the same as rooting your phone. It also does nothing with Knox.

Hello @user_ams007 ,

You should be able to uninstall Facebook from Settings -> apps now on a unlocked device.
